Theme Issues on 3.1.2?
I have a 3G S, I jailbroke 3.1.2 with blackra1n.
I had illumine, iGlassSol and a bunch of other themes before, and now it seems like everything went to crap!
Illumine no longer resizes my icons, and the iGlassSol overlay doesn't even work anymore. What a bunch of crap. If I can't get a decent theme to work and have ALL the icons uniform, this is pointless to me.
Yeah, I like having my other stuff too but this is retarded. Anyone else know why this is happening?
Alright so I just caught wind that using blackra1n could be what is causing the problem.
Restoring now and going to re-jailbreak with PwnageTool this time. We'll see what happens w/ that.
I'll report back, if this issue was already posted, sorry.

i had a problem with my '5icon dock' and with 'winterboard'...yes i said 'winterboard...when i tried to DL WB, it froze on me when i rebooted but i re-JB and they are working fine now
took me 7 attempts to get this thing running the way i want it to
Alright, found a fix for this. It isn't necessarily a 3.1.2 issue, I think it's an iTunes issue, and how the pointer is caching icons on the newer versions.
I spent like 2 hours SSH'ing into my phone trying to find a fix, and I did! (Then I googled it and realized it was posted on macrumors already, i suck
either way, if your icons are not sizing like they should, it's because the icon mask isn't working properly, so as a temporary fix until the dev can release an update that fixes the issue, SSH into your phone, and navigate to /var/mobile/Library/Caches
you'll see a folder called SpringboardIconCache - go into that folder, highlight EVERYTHING and delete it. Then delete the folder itself (it won't let you delete the folder most of the time if there are contents in it, so delete the files inside it, then the actual folder)...then respring your device and voila, it should work.
this should work for ANY theme that uses an icon mask. at least until the creators fix the issue or patch it.

After you delete everything in the folder, are you deleting the folder itself as well? That makes a difference.
And also, do you have a theme that resizes icons active when you do this? That's key. Otherwise that folder probably wouldn't matter anyways.
